Obviously, that would be up to the discretion of the referee but from attempting to literally intrepret the question, I would say no. According to National Hockey League rules, there seem to be two instances related to the situation mentioned in the question where penalty shots are awarded when the puck is in the crease: 1) A player falls on the puck in the goal crease 2) A player picks up the puck in the goal crease with his hand. SInce it sounds like the player was already on the ice and did nothing to attempt to cover the puck in the crease, and the player did not pick up or grip the puck while in the crease, I would interpret the rules to mean that a penalty shot would not be awarded. I would be interested in knowing the opinions of others on this situation.

Can you go in the goalies crease in soccer?

no you can not go in the crease on the goalie side what kind of dumb question is that Yes, any player of either team CAN step into the crease. You can score and pass from inside the crease as well. However, you cannot walk into the crease while you have the ball (meaning you can pass the ball to someone who's inside the crease, and you can walk into the crease while you do not have the ball). The guy who called this a 'dumb question' must be pretty dumb himself.

Is lbw related to whether the batsman is in the crease or not?

While the batsman's position may affect whether an lbw call is made - if he is far out of crease and struck mid-thigh, for example, he would certainly not be given out, but in the shin when in his crease, he probably should - it is not a requirement that he be in, on or near his crease.
